Unit of Sensitivity of an Instrument
The sensitivity of an instrument is found by dividing the sum of the resistance of meter (Rm ) and the series resistance (Rs ), by the full-scale reading in volts.
Sensitivity (S) = change in output/ unit change in input = Δ output/Δinput
Sensitivity is mathematically written as:
Sensitivity = (Rm + Rs)/E
Expressing the above expression in units, we get:
Sensitivity = Ohms/Volt
Unit of instrument sensitivity is expressed in Ohm/Volt
Sensitivity is also expressed as:
Sensitivity = 1/ampere
As a result, it is argued that sensitivity is equal to the full-scale deflection current's reciprocal.
The unit of sensitivity of an instrument is? (A) ampere/sec (B) volt/ohm (C) volt-amp (D) ohm/volt
Ohm/volt is the measurement of an instrument's sensitivity. The ratio between changes in an instrument's output and changes in the value of the quantity being monitored can be used to summarise it. It stands for the smallest change in the variable under observation to which the instrument responds.
